We booked a few rooms in this motel for a couple of nights and were slightly disappointed when our VIP guest silently walked out because of the 'uncleanliness of the room'. When I called and voiced my concern, the gentleman at the front desk became very unhelpful and I requested to pull out all my guests. I was later charged... More

For the price, this place is fine. It's nice and central and you can wander down to Cuba Street bars and restaurants. They have internet access, the rooms and linen are clean, and the service is friendly. Parking is hit and miss, but we managed. Don't expect anything too flash and you won't be disappointed.

Have just spent the weekend staying here (Room 17). The man at the counter was very helpful and pleasant. The room was clean and tidy. Beds were remade and coffee etc restocked. Nothing flash, but a good weekends stay. Vast improvement over a few years back :) Thanks!

Not its not the ritz but its fine for the price cheap and cheerful! Managers were helpful, accommodating. The street noise is probably the biggest issue with the road works around. We were ok on the top floor but the other room we had was noisier.

The description did not truely depict the location, state of the place or accomodation. There was no separate dining or living room, it was noisy, gross and overpriced. The smell from the carpark to back door was putrid. I would never stay there again and spent as little.time there as possible.

The accommodation is satisfactory, a bit rough round the edges, it's very hard to find unit with three bedrooms, staff were helpful, great view, nice and central to the CBD, ate Papa, and Carter Observatory, it's not five star, but ok for a short stay. If they were to sort out a few basic things then this would be great... More

Saving electricity is one thing but this room was dark. All the globes had been replaced with low wattage fluorescent bulbs and to see I had to turn everything on. Most of the bulbs in the mirror had actually been removed. I am not sure if this place was in the process of refurbishment at the time as there were... More

My SiL stayed here. The decor is very dated, but the room was clean and functional. The towels were very thin and rough, but they had brought their own. No air conditioning, but that is quite usual for old 3-star hotels in New Zealand. The bed was OK and had nice clean sheets and duvet.
